Developing with JavaServer Faces Technology
Chapter 7, Using JavaServer Faces Technology in Web Pages and Chapter 8, Using Converters, Listeners, and Validators show how to add components to a page and connect them to server-side objects by using component tags and core tags, as well as how to provide additional functionality to the components through converters, listeners, and validators. Developing a JavaServer Faces application also involves the task of programming the server-side objects: managed beans, converters, event handlers, and validators.
This chapter provides an overview of managed beans and explains how to write methods and properties of managed beans that are used by a JavaServer Faces application. This chapter also introduces the Bean Validation feature.
